President Donald Trump’s administration is expected to spend up to $300 million to rehabilitate and rehabilitate some of its own wildlife in the West Coast, according to documents obtained by Politico.
The effort to reinvigorate wildlife habitat in the Western United States is part of Trump’s plan to modernize and revitalize the nation’s wild areas, which are under attack by wildfires and climate change.
The administration also plans to make an additional $250 million available to states to fund wildlife management programs.
The National Park Service, which oversees national parks, also is expected the administration will provide additional funding to states and tribal nations to protect the West’s wild animals, including endangered species and birds.
In addition, the administration is looking to bolster the public perception of the West in general and the West as a whole by promoting the concept of the “wilderness.”
The White House announced in April that it would spend $200 million to upgrade wildlife habitat on the West, and it has pledged to spend another $100 million in 2018 on the process.
Trump and the administration have pledged to make the West a national park by 2025, and the Department of Interior and the National Park Foundation are planning to launch an annual fund to provide up to 10 percent of the park’s total funding for public access to the park.
